As You Like It (1983)
by William Shakespeare
Richard Digby Day's classic take on one of Shakespeare's most well known comedies, featured some very well received performances from a stellar cast. Olympic/World Champion ice skater (and BBC Sports Personality) John Curry played a 'pleasing' Orlando, and his fellow romantic lead, Louise Jameson a 'lovely' Rosalind (The Yorkshire Post). The production also featured Abigail McKern (as Celia), who also won the SWET (now Olivier) Award for Best Supporting Actress. It was David William's Jaques that stole the show, who's performance 'ought to do down in theatrical history' due to 'exquisite timing' and 'superbly poised contemplation' (The Daily Telegraph).
